10 N. Spencer Street, Lexington, IL
An Extraordinary Offering of Historical Magnificence. This impeccably restored 1898 Victorian residence stands as a testament to timeless elegance and contemporary living. The expansive 42-acre canvas of breathtaking beauty boasts meticulously manicured grounds that illustrates an awe-inspiring visual spectacle that commands attention and admiration.
This 1898 Victorian, Queen Anne home is built of Milwaukee cream brick pointed with delicate butter joints, atop a Bedford limestone foundation. The gabled Canadian black slate roof is 25 years into its 150-year lifespan and features Flemish steps on all sides. The flat copper roof above the veranda conceals box gutters and doubles as the second-floor balconies. A painted tin cornice wraps around both roof lines. Available fully furnished.
Pool / Guest House
Talk about lifestyle! A contemporary 2,175 s.f. pool house / guest house with an attached 3-car garage sits alongside the in-ground pool. The one bedroom, one bath pool dwelling boasts an open kitchen, living room, breakfast nook, laundry room, and plenty of privacy. Form and function. The best of all possible worlds!
The beautifully landscaped grounds include manicured gardens with a fountain, gazebo, and a lush mini arboretum surrounding the main house. The front lawn is home to 75-year-old junipers, various gingko and firs, and twenty-four magnolia trees. Adjacent to the pool is a well-maintained tennis court that pulls double duty for half-court basketball. Further out on the acreage is a camping spot (designated by a clearing and firepit), animal statuary, and MTC train tracks.
Complementing the main house and pool / guest dwelling are two steel Morton structures: a train barn and an octagonal building. The multi-purpose train barn houses a restored 36-passenger MTC train in mint condition (which runs on 2 miles of track traversing the grounds), as well as a two-story multi-vehicle garage/workshop with an open loft and a large, climate controlled second floor space. The octagonal building (currently housing a restored 36-horse Herschel carousel) is an ideal event space. The space is climate-controlled, equipped with ADA-accessible restrooms and water fountains, and features a partially covered patio leading out the lawn.
